Sturmpercht are a band from Switzerland that plays a style that I would describe as being Alpine Folk and this is a review of their compilation album "A Wilde Zeit" which was released by Percht during the year of 2009.
Percussion's are mostly slow beats that have a medieval folk music feel with some tribal beats, while the acoustic guitars are very primal sounding neo-folk music riffs with a small amount of classical guitar being used at times, as for the accordions they have a very medieval feeling sound to them.
Vocals are all clean singing vocals with some whispers and a good amount of aggression with some spoken word parts, while the synths have a very tragic sound to them, as for the the lyrics are written in German and are about Alpine tales and legends from long forgotten times with some songs about creatures and others being about beer drinking, while the production it has a very powerful sound that brings the medieval music to the modern days.
In my opinion Sturmpercht are a very talented neo-folk band that should appeal to all fans of this genre. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wir Rufen Deine Wolfe" "Ewige Geganwart" "Der Marsch Der Wampelerreiter" and "Schnaderhupfiska". RECOMMENDED BUY.
